During July and August, Sanibel Sea School will partner with Road Scholar, an educational travel company, to host grandparents and their grandchildren for six days of intergenerational exploration and learning.
Participants will stay at Sundial Beach Resort & Spa, where Sanibel Sea School operates a satellite campus, and will visit Sanibel’s unique beaches, mangrove forests, and seagrass beds led by the nonprofit’s team of knowledgeable marine educators. Activities will include snorkeling, seining, a squid dissection, and more.
“We are honored to work with such a well-respected organization,” said Dr. Bruce Neill, Sanibel Sea School’s Executive Director. “Road Scholar is dedicated to inspiring and providing lifelong learning opportunities, which is perfectly aligned with our own approach to ocean education. It is a beautiful thing when two generations can experience the ocean’s magic together.”
Sanibel Sea School, a 501c3 nonprofit whose mission is to improve the ocean’s future, one person at a time, also has plans to offer a retreat for active adults with Road Scholar in Fall 2017. To learn more, visit sanibelseaschool.org and roadscholar.org.
